Did you know that fluoride in water can give you cancer? That it is a ‘mutagen’ that leads to permanent changes in the biological structures of life forms? That it will cause Down Syndrome? That it causes hip fractures in seniors? That it makes virile men infertile? And that many public agencies advocate it being dumped into the public water supplies? If you said that you didn’t know these things, it is probably because they are all lies! Of course you may have heard these brash statements, but you need to know that they are all totally false. I am a general dentist. Patients, parents, friends, and acquaintances often ask me if the rumors they hear and read about fluoride and water fluoridation are true. “Is fluoride bad for me? Do I really need fluoride? Can fluoride make my cavities worse? I read on the internet that water fluoridation is a government conspiracy. My brother told me fluoride causes brain damage. I will never let my kids have fluoride!” I wrote this book to address these and many other questions and concerns relating to fluoride and fluoridated community water. This book will take you on a fun and fascinating journey through the history of fluoride, how it was discovered by accident that fluoride helps prevent tooth decay, and how to use fluoride properly. This book will also dispel or “debunk” all the myths and misinformation out there about fluoride. Hope you enjoy it.
